A new special collection invites papers pertaining to the use of machine learning techniques in all sub-fields of heliophysics.
The loss cone of energetic particles in the Earth’s inner magnetosphere is substantially modified during disturbed times, with important implications for the radiation-belt and ring current modeling.
Meteoric ions dominate the Jovian lower ionosphere due to their long lifetimes. Due to the large densities of the meteoric ions, conductance is enhanced independently of local time.
Observations of cross-polar cap neutral winds near 240 km altitude stalling over short distances in the midnight sector near Poker Flat, Alaska, challenge the standard view of high-latitude dynamics.
Magnetic reconnection events less than 2 Jovian radii above the planet’s cloud tops could explain why Juno has yet to observe a source for Jupiter’s polar aurore.
Researchers present a new pattern-finding technique to better estimate missing data on ionospheric plasma velocities.
Over 2 decades, Cluster has shed light on the auroral acceleration region, where parallel electric fields send charged particles on a collision course with the atmosphere.
Increased tropospheric heating and reduced dissipation combine to explain an anomalously large thermal tide.
Observations reveal a connection between auroral particle precipitation and scintillation, indicating that the ionospheric E-region is a key source region for phase scintillation at auroral latitudes.
Analysis of multiple satellite data has revealed a striking connection between K-H waves on the magnetopause, surface waves in the hot zone near the plasmapause, and auroral undulations.
